Great guide to cultivation of most common and quite a lot of exotic houseplants.

Initial section on appreciation and use of houseplants ut the bulk of the book is mad eup of the A-Z.

Illustrated mostly with monochrome line drawings or coloured sketches, each entry gives general info followed y recommended varieties/cultivars and details of how to care for the plant covering light, temperature, watering, feeding, potting/repotting and propagation requirements.

Different Reader's Digest Success With Houseplants Cover -mine published in 1979

480 pages of clear articles, good botanical drawings and some photos lend to easy plant identification. Thorough Glossary and Index. Sections on plant health, pests and disease especially helpful.

Good refference and "how to" volume.

So far, so good! I just found this 1979 copy in a book sale, but everything I'm seeing is still good information.
